For a long time, wood has been a material of choice for replacement windows, providing homes a wide range of benefits including durability, energy efficiency and long-term beauty. If you are beginning a window replacement project in Asheville and you are still unclear about what windows you would like to see in your home, our experts would be happy to share with you why wood windows are one of our most popular replacement window choices at Pella Windows and Doors.
At Pella Windows and Doors, we recognize that a concern with wood windows is the accompanying maintenance. According to Remodeling Magazine’s Cost vs. Value 2017 Report, wood window replacements return 73.0% of the cost of the project upon resale. But the reason why many people switch to wooden windows is the warmth and beauty they can bring to the space in your home. Here are a few more reasons why it’s valuable to think about wood windows:
Pella Windows and Doors has a selection of products that are designed to protect against the elements and provide enduring performance in Asheville. Pella’s EnduraGuard® wood protection offers advanced protection against the effects of moisture, decay, stains from mold and mildew. You also have the opportunity to use aluminum- or vinyl-cladding to go the extra mile to help protect your wood from potential damage due to weather. These options, plus our wood treatment, makes our wood windows long-lasting against the elements for many years.
Wood is a natural insulator. It doesn’t matter what the season or weather is like in Asheville, wood windows can save you a few bucks on your heating and cooling utility bills—see ENERGY STAR for more details. Wood is also a great renewable building selection. This can give you some piece of mind that wood is a renewable resource.
It’s been said before, but wood replacement windows are truly a timeless style. Wood windows have been around for hundreds of years providing character to your home; helping your space look warmer and inviting; and flawlessly complementing wood flooring, cabinetry or interior décor that you might already have in your home. Wood windows give you virtually endless choices for styles, colors and shapes of window frames, and they can also be painted or stained to fit the feel of your room.
